Realtek8180l card. Connects to router but cannot surf internet


Pardon my newb speak as I am very new to all things linux.

Running Debian Etch on an IBM Thinkpad R51 model 2888-Y1M
Wireless Card is a linksys WPC11 V4

Firstly I used ndiswrapper to make the card work.
ndiswrapper -l ***yields
net8180 driver installed, hardware (10EC:8180) present

I used the XP driver

next

dhclient wlan0
Listening on LPF/wlan0/00:06:25:2b:dd:2b
Sending on LPF/wlan0/00:06:25:2b:dd:2b
Sending on Socket/fallback
DHCPREQUEST on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67
DHCPACK from 10.1.2.1
bound to 10.1.2.6 -- renewal in 20795 seconds.


I open opera, enter a web address, and I get the error page
I open Konqueror, same problem
I open Iceweasel, same problem

The router is not out of range either. I am sitting right next to it connected via ethernet to post this.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

update

new problem.
Modprobe ndiswrapper doesn't return any errors however
debian:/home/pete# iwconfig wlan0
wlan0 No such device

debian:/home/pete# dhclient wlan0

For info, please visit http://www.isc.org/sw/dhcp/

SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
Bind socket to interface: No such device
debian:/home/pete#

The link light on the pcmia card that means it's installed and working properly (with or without connection) is not on. Power is on.

debian:/home/pete# ndiswrapper -l
Installed ndis drivers:
net8180 driver present, hardware present


******update Dec 6.

Reinstalled debian, downloaded and compiled the latest version of ndiswrapper from sourceforge. that seemed to fix the problem.
